“March is stirring its tail”: will sudden warming of the stratosphere cause winter chills next month?

‘March moves its tail’ is the well-known weather saying. But will that also be the case this year? If we can believe the weather maps, yes. Because they indicate that a change is coming in the weather. In the second half of February, a sudden warming will occur in the stratosphere. But what exactly does that mean? And what will be the effect of this on our weather in the coming month? Is winter pulling out all the stops again? Or will the influence of stratospheric warming remain limited? Climate expert Samuel Helsen tells us what we can expect.
